to last. siemens, answers. >> theu.s.economyinthefourthquarte of. the u.s. economy in the fourth quarter of last year october, november, december contracted by 0. 1%. one-tenth of 1%. it was the first contraction in three years and it rattles financial markets. much of the slippage in gross domestic product, was due to what the u.s. federal reserves describes as quote weather related disruptions and other transitory facts unquote. the central bank is keeping monetary policy on hold. and says n worth of long-term securities a month, until there is a substantial improvement in the outlook for the labor market. also, the cut back in department of defense outlays, is likely to fuel concerns about the size of a slow down and the full economic fallout of the large quote unquote sequester cuts scheduled for a month from now, the start of march. the president's press secretary said this about the sequester. quote, across-the-board cuts to education, to research and development, would have repeat, would have, damaging effects on our economy and our long-term economic prospects. unquote. a growing
how china will surpass us. he said that in the florida senate in 2011 and how we need each other. but that's diplomacy comest you can get a bit of a pass. senator hagel, key was had by the executive commission on china, but talk solely about development issues. rule of law and economic growth is fine. but that's not the job he's getting. he said absolutely nothing about the rise of china. he's also said absolutely nothing about he has had the defense department is going to do with the rise of china in an era of budget cuts to the defense department he supports. it's very troubling, fred has a great way of putting this consensus reality that in a sense it doesn't matter. so did not do the job better and you can take that for granted. japan for the first time in a decade has not just her and run defense budget, modestly $1.6 billion increase. it would be nice to see it continue, but everyone watches very carefully to see the leading indicator, which is us and what we're willing to do. taiwan is a country rushing to the exit to make sure nothing comes between it and china and theref
answer. >> what about this jewish lobby business? he apologized for using that phrase, but listen to this exchange with lindsey graham. >> name one person who is intimidated by the israeli lobby in the u.s. senate. >> the use of intimidation -- i should have used influence. >> he could not name one person publicly. this is gamesmanship of the first order. you have conversations with plenty members of congress, and they feel one way about some of the issues in the middle east and feel they simply cannot move an inch on questions involving israel. >> is chuck hagel in command of the issues that he will be grappling with here? >> i do not think anybody would have come off well. it was a halting performance by chuck hagel, and chuck hagel, to underline what nina said earlier, is not a verbally- nimble person. he is not known for sound bites, not somebody that you go to if you want a quotation on a deadline. he will give you thought full context. >> god forbid. [laughter] >> more than anything else, i could not get over the back during quality. yes or no, yes or no, senator. john mccai

viewers like you. thank you. >> brown: for the second time in five months, a u.s. diplomatic post has been the target of a deadly assault. a suicide bomber detonated a vest with explosives outside the u.s. embassy in ankara, turkey, today, killing himself and a security guard. the white house described it as a terrorist attack. the explosion occurred around 1:15 p.m. local time. afterward, police tried to hold back the crowd gathered outside the u.s. facility in the turkish capital. debris littered the street near a side entrance where the blast took place. emergency workers wheeled one of the injured into an awaiting ambulance. u.s. ambassador to turkey francis ricciardone spoke to reporters outside the embassy. >> right now, we are all dealing with our sadness at the loss of our fellow member of our embassy. we salute his bravery, his service to turkey and to turkish-american friendship. our hearts go out to his family. >> brown: in istanbul, prime minister recep tayyip erdogan called the bombing an "attack against peace in our country." and in washington, the state department's victoria
's it for us. thanks for watching. "erin burnett out front" starts now. >> a suicide bomber stages a deadly strike on an american embassy and this time the white house quick to label it a terrorist attack. >>> plus, a prosecutor gunned down on the way to work. friend says he believes he was in serious danger. was it revenge for doing his job? >>> and guns and politics. did joe biden slip of the tongue just wreck the president's message on guns? let's go out front. >>> good evening, everyone. i'm erin burnett. american embassy attacked. a suicide bomber struck at a security checkpoint at the american embassy in turkey today, and this time the white house immediately labeled it an act of terror. >> a suicide bombing on the perimeter of an embassy is by definition an act of terror, a terrorist attack. however, we do not know at this point who is responsible or the motivations behind the attack. the attack itself is clearly an act of terror. >> an act of terror regardless of who is responsible or what their motivations are. more on that in a moment, but first, chris lawrence at the pentagon. ch
eating the cobra, stay tuned. that does it for us, go >>> do you think government spending is the big problem, the thing that is really holding the economy back? if so then you had a bad week. >> first jobs report of the year. >> fourth quarter gdp numbers are down. >> the republican party can't move forward. >> government spending does actually help the economy. >> a trillion dollar stimulus bill, supposed to create jobs. >> we need to start solving the actual problem. >> we need to cut spending. >> cutting. >> cutting very popular social insurance programs. medicaid, medicare, social security, health care. >> there is another economic reason why we need reform. >> let's help to build the greatest economic engine the world has ever known. >> as congress gets ready to tackle the immigration, there will be a snag. >> the republican party can't move forward. >> doesn't want to do anything on comprehensive immigration reform. >> what would you do about immigration? >> how to deal with border security. >> first we strengthen the borders. >> they have to be reasonable how they do it. >> we
. the u.s. economy is a puzzling thing. today it added 157,000 jobs but the unemployment rate kicked up to 7.9%. also today the dow industrial average closed above 14,000 for the first time in five years, yet the government reported this week that the economy contracted in the fourth quarter of last year for the first time since 2009. so as congress agrees to delay a showdown over the debt ceiling and faces a march 1 deadline for across the board spending cuts, what to make of this darned economy, david? >> am i supposed to answer that? it is confusing. the stock market is up. employers are hiring, very slowly. the government now tells us that hey -- they hired a lot more last year than previously believed. auto seafls are up 14% from last year. housing sales are coming back. on the other hand the economy took a pause at the end of last year? unemployment is very high, 7.9%. among men between 25 and 54 one out of six is not working. so i think when you cut through all this what do you see? well, the stock market is going like this and the economy is going like this. that can't last. i c
. and this morning he's going to talk to us about his latest, "invisible armies." with that, turn it over to you, max. [applause] >> thank you very much, steve, for that warm and generous introduction, and thank you also for your many years of service, and i see a lot of folks who are either current and active duty or retired military, and i thank all of you for your years of service to the nation. what i'm here to talk about today is the contents of my new book, which as steve mentioned, is a history of ger guerrilla warfare. and although it may seem thick and daunting at first glance, i did try to tell a good story. it sort of encapsulated 5,000 years of guerrilla warfare history into one book. now, that may seem like a formidable undertaking, but here today in front of your very eyes, i'm going to do something that is even harder; i'm going to try to encapsulate the entire book into about a 25-minute talk. [laughter] so that's going to work out to about 200 years per minute. sofassen your -- sofassen your seat belts, we're going to go on a historical journey here. i'm going to talk about the origi
to use that as a bargaining chip again. we saw how damaging bringing into question the credit worthyness of the government. the fight should not be should we pay the bill? >> there is an interesting question about in retrospect if republicans leveraging the debt limit to get a bill that cut spending by $1 to $2 trillion going forward whether that was worth it? they introduced liquidity risk. if you don't cut spending we're not going to vote for a debt limit increase. it worked. the president agreed to cut the spending by a significant amount. now, would you like that negotiation had resulted from not having made that threat? absolutely. but do you think it would have occurred? there's the difference. i would never be one to advocate that congress should not increase the debt limit. they should. when this came up in the summer of 2011 i wrote that and they put that in the pages of "the initial review." i was arguing against those who say let's look and creating a cash crunch. that is the wrong thing to do. congress has the ability to decide what they want to attach to the legislation. tha
to continue to have came playing? are we going to say we need to use women when we need to use them, but they are not in the unit's? i will be keeping a close eye -- in the unit'? i will be keeping a close eye on that. we heard so many ways that the old policy was implemented. i do not think it but he claims commanders in the field. they said direct down, that means well forward on the battlefield. some people say that means we will not send women's in in the first 15 minutes of a raid. some people say we will not send women out when it is a nighttime raid. some people say you will not ride in the first two congress of the convoy. you will not be the -- first two cars of the convoy. you will say, the last commander sent me out at night. i do not know why you will not jumble are we going to see more of that or will that -- i do not know why you will not? i know that was not getting out of the weeds. i am very detail oriented. it touches >> on the implications in challenges we are going to have and the town -- kind of accountability moving forward. we are going to turn now to the legi
. the policy of our country, foreign policy, all the instruments of power it that you use to frame a policy must be driven with some higher purpose. i mentioned purpose, we lost purpose. we have been about ricocheting crisis to crisis. there's no strategic thinking, hasn't been strategic thinking for a long time in our foreign policy. it is the point i keep making. so does dick lugar who is one of the most accomplished foreign policy thinkers in the country as i do joe biden, one of the best. they talked about this for years. you must frame a strategic context first and then you frame the policy to fit the strategic context, the national interest of your country. what john bose. millennium john's account. that was one of the more creative things we have done. it is bigger than that. until we get a president that does that, then is able to implement, by the way in partnership with the congress, doesn't mean the congress has to agree with everything but you can't treat article i of the constitution like it is an appendix, like it is a nuisance. if for no other reason you can't sustain a forei
it is the responsibility of all of us but especially those who are in public service and have the public trust. and if we are to trespass on people's time, asking them to consider realizing what we -- reading what we put down, then we owe it to the readers, to the audience, to our constituents, to the country to, as my brother tom noted, have something to say. and i didn't ever really thought i had enough to say, maybe a chapter's worth, but i never thought a book. i've written a number of op eds over the years, a lot of articles, given a lot of speeches, but never a book. and until about a year and a half ago, and as i get around the world and listen and try to keep my receivers tuned on as much as my transmitter -- i think the world would be far better off if we had more receivers on than transmitters -- it struck me that with all the great issues and challenges that face our country in the world today, i'd never seen a summary that would connect these issues in a cogent way, that would frame the world and within the framing of the world and the issues and the challenges and the solutions, in a way tha
. then today's white house briefing. female veterans discuss lifting of the u.s. military's ban on women in combat. and economists from the george w. bush and obama administrations give their 2013 economic forecast. today was hillary clinton's last day as secretary of state she gave a speech in which she thanked her employees and discussed american diplomacy. former senator john kerry has been sworn in as the next secretary. [cheers and applause] >> good afternoon, everyone. good afternoon, everyone. madam secretary, four years ago i stood on this same spot and had the honor of introducing you to the men and women of the department of state. on that first day on, you've touched the lives of millions and millions of people around the world. left a profoundly positive mark on american foreign policy and you've done enormous good for all of us and for the country we serve. we will miss you deeply. [cheers and applause] but none of us will ever forget your extraordinary leadership and each of us will always be deeply proud to say that we served hillary clinton's state department. [cheers and
series is a form that makes it possible for us to talk in depth about the issues that matter most in washington. in twitter land, if i do it right, the questions will pop up right here. i got my first tweet. i will try to do that. [laughter] they will pop up as we come. now, i would like to welcome politico star manu ragu. [applause] thank you for coming in. thank you very much. was the "gang of eight" a secret? was their detective work in uncovering it? >> yes. they did not want to let on how much work and progress was being made behind the scenes. in washington, whenever word starts leaking out about what is happening, those talks blow up. as they were negotiating this was happening at the time of the fiscal cliff negotiations, much of the media focus was happening on the fiscal cliff. the staff was meeting, the senators were meeting, and they really only had the first meeting after the holidays. last wednesday, when they were close to finalizing that agreement. it was not until over the weekend that they actually finalize did and announced it on monday. things moved rapidly. on
was an enlisted soldier and rose to sergeant. a noncommissioned officer with the infantry, a grunt as they used to say in vietnam. this is navy pilot john mccain with his squadron in 1965 before he was captured. hagel made reference to the vantage point an enlisted man has in war. >> i saw it from the bottom. i saw what happens. i saw the consequences and the suffering and the horror of war. so i did question a surge. i always ask the question, is this going to be worth the sacrifice, because there will be sacrifice. in the surge case in iraq, we lost almost 1,200 dead americans during that surge and thousands of wounded. now, was it required? was it necessary? senator mccain has his own opinion on that shared by others. i'm not sure. i'm not that certain that it was required. >> you know, the horror of vietnam, where i wasn't -- i always point that out -- the guys who were, into the jungle, fighting an enemy you couldn't see. there were no p.o.w.s in the jungle wars. they didn't take prisoners. you know, what we did with ours, we turned ours over for god knows what kind of treatment. that was
i'd say almost purely destructive because it has, in fact, led us to some short-term budget cuts that are harmful. it has not led to any resolution of long-term issues which i don't think is possible in this political environment. >> is there any way now to create a bunch of jobs? >> oh -- >> how? how would you create jobs right now? >> if we could do a slug of federal aid to state and local governments that would let them rehire school teachers they laid off and restart the road repair project they've put on ice. right there you could create over a million jobs directly and a half million more indirectly through the effects of demand. if we did that, within 18 months, the unemployment rate would be somewhere in the low sixes. it's -- technically, economically it's the easiest thing in the world. politically we know it's not going happen. it's all about the politics. it's not about economics. >> let's keep the conversation going. you can find us on facebook and twitter. our handle is cnnbottomline, my handle is @christineromans. join me at 1:00 p.m. for "your money." hear why bil
. >>> good morning, everyone. i'm randi kaye. glad you're with us this morning. we begin with new allegations of drug use against alex rodriguez. it's not the first time that he's been accused of using performance enhancing drugs. the first time was actually several years ago. the current chatter is that it happened again last year. our national correspondent, susan candiotti, is in new york. what is behind the new allegations? >> reporter: good morning. it looks like a-rod's ped controversy wga won't go away. now there's another report alleging alex rodriguez got home visits to his waterfront miami mansion from a man who ran a clinic. espn quoting unidentified sources says that man, anthony bosh, injected a-rod with performance enhancing drugs. once bosh was reportedly kicked out of a-rod's home after bosh allegedly had trouble finding a vein. similar drug claims were leveled earlier this week. in the "miami times" newspaper, it says it has a diary containing notes from bosh detailing drugs including human growth hormone given to several athletes. cnn has been unable to independently see the
prescription sleep aid approved for use as needed in the middle of the night when you can't get back to sleep. it's an effective sleep medicine you don't take before bedtime. take it in bed only when you need it and have at least four hours left for sleep. do not take intermezzo if you have had an allergic reaction to drugs containing zolpidem, such as ambien. allergic reactions such as shortness of breath or swelling of your tongue or throat may occur and may be fatal. intermezzo should not be taken if you have taken another sleep medicine at bedtime or in the middle of the night or drank alcohol that day. do not drive or operate machinery until at least 4 hours after taking intermezzo and you're fully awake. driving, eating, or engaging in other activities while not fully awake without remembering the event the next day have been reported. abnormal behaviors may include aggressiveness, agitation, hallucinations, or confusion. alcohol or taking other medicines that make you sleepy may increase these risks. in depressed patients, worsening of depression, including risk of suicide, may occur.
